GSP Question

I put some GSP in a tank right when I set it up, it survived the cycle but something weird happened and I need help understanding, it seemed they thrived more in the tank that was cycling then the tank that's been up for 5 years. Any ideas?

Actually, I have no idea. LOL Mine has always thrived and spread like a darn plague no matter what tank I put it in.

How long has it been in the new tank? maybe it just needs some more time....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well I know they don't like trates. Mine let me know when its time for a water change. Also they like high flow so they could be reacting to that.

They were in a low flow. They were in the tank for the entire month of the cycle

That's what's crazy about saltwater. What I do is try to eliminat any possible thing it could be. Move it to higher flow for a bit if it continues to stay closed try something else like different light or position in the tanj.
